I have not bought anything for myself for quite some time due to budget issues. My recent vacation, and all the bead purchases I made during it, were a present from my boyfriend. (what a great boyfriend and great present! He’s the best!)
But my birthday is Monday, so I have just placed two books on pre-order at Amazon as a birthday present to myself. Heck, I can cut out $32.00 from somewhere else. It’s worth it.
First is Artistic Seed Bead Jewelry: Ideas and Techniques for Original Designs by Maggie Roschyk. It is scheduled to be released on December 19, so I’ll get it fairly soon. I just love Maggie’s designs, and I’m sure her design hints will be invaluable!
My next pre-order was for Beaded Fantasies: 30 Romantic Jewelry Projects by Sabine Lippert. It is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2012. I’m sure by then I will have forgotten all about the order so it will be a surprise when I receive it. Exciting! I have always been a fan of Sabine’s work, and can’t wait to have this collection of her projects. Plus, this book is a hardcover!
I can’t wait to get them, and will write reviews of both as soon as I do! Hop on over to Amazon and get your own!
